I have been using Acronis 9 for the past few years and love it. It has saved me many times and I can't imagine how I got along so long without a product like this. This past weekend, I was trying to restore my wife's crashed PC using .tib files I had stored on a Network drive (Buffalo Linkstation). I connected her hard drive to my laptop via a USB enclosure and while running the restore, Acronis notified me that it may have to restart the computer and asked for a username/password combo. I wasn't sure what to use, but I tried various Username/password combos that I thought it was asking for. No matter what Username/password I used, the restore didn't work; Acronis started the restore without issue, but after it rebooted the PC and started Acronis True Image immediately on startup, the restore would always fail, but not much explanation. I kind of figured out that it couldn't access the Network Drive upon start up and therefore couldn't find the .tib file. However, I didn't know what to do to make Acronis see that drive when it run on bootup. I ended up copying the .tib files to another External drive and connected it directly to my laptop via USB. This time when running the restore, Acronis didn't ask for any username/password. The restore continued as normal and after Acronis rebooted the PC this time the restore ran fine and my wife's computer was able to be restored. Though all worked out in the end, I am wondering if there is anyway to avoid having to copy my image files from my network drive to a regular external drive. The copying process takes a while and I would like to avoid having to do this in the future if possible. Thanks.
